To heal my wounds, I worshiped myself.
I found the wrong path to healing and only stumbled on my way.
Self-worship became wounds wrapped in chains.
Birthmarks for my children,
Who received their own wounds.
We seek our heading on life’s path,
To heal wounds,
To break chains.
Christ is that Way,
The Rock on which chains break,
To make us free.

Thanks, Melissa. God bless.
Truth here. The heart tells us worship is the answer, but self-worship won’t do it.
No, it won’t. Thanks, Ann. God bless!
WOW… this is powerful and so true. Thank you!
Thank you, Jessica. God bless!
Powerful words of truth!
Thank you, Melinda. God bless!
I really like this poem because of the truth it communicates. Pop psych focuses people on themselves, but any gains through that method are temporary and unsatisfying.
And Christ’s healing is fulfilling and permanent. Thanks, Annie. God bless!
A strong message in few words, Nancy. Thank you.
